First Swim At Dawn Fraser Baths This Season

It's been a while since I wrote anything. I carried on swimming at Wylie's, Mahons and the surf- lifesavers pool at Coogee right through September. The water warmed up very quickly and was around 19 degrees by October. The October school holidays were awful with storms, persistent rain, dangerous seas and cold temperatures. No swimming for me until the last couple of days.

This weekend I swam at Wylie's a couple of times. Twenty degrees now and beautiful clear water. I thought today (Sunday) I would swim at Balmain in the Dawn Fraser Baths where I had meant to go on the first day of the summer season. Of course the storms etc. prevented that.

Not so sunny today but still warm.

I love the walk down to the baths, through the park, under the massive trees.

Nine o' clock, and I was the only swimmer.

The water was gorgeous.
